COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a part of a Single Hop IPA series by Mikkeller. We created this series to showcase hop varieties on their own. This gives the consumer the possibility of smelling and tasting the unique characteristics of each variety and hopefully helping to educate people about the wonderful world of hops. For each beer, the single hop variety was used in the same weight for bittering, aroma and flavor and for dry hopping. All 19 varieties of single hop beers in this series were brewed the same week and with malts from the same batches and the same yeast and fermentation temperatures. This is done to better compare the characteristics of the different hop varieties.

Dark for an IPA and very cloudy. half inch or so of creamy head. Aromas of caramel, citrus in balance. Fresh cut grass. A couple months of age may have dulled the aroma. Side by side with the centennial version of this, this is mighty bitter. Really all-over puckering sharp bitterness.

Pours dark and murky, expected more aroma. Taste is nothing special, but a bitter aftertaste refreshes you and then leaves you with a dry bang!

dfearnley (889) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle to taster Grapefruit, spruce, grapes, and resin. It’s a clear amber with lots of effervescence, and a frothy 2cm off white head with decent retention. Taste is fruity up front, with a strong grapefruit and bitter middle and bitter end with a slight syrupy sweetness. This is pretty good since it’s just a single hop.

330ml bottle from Valhalla’s Goat. Reddish amber brown, reasonable head. Leafy resin hop aroma. Caramel hop flavour. Caramel grapefruit aftertaste. Good hop but not one of the best.

angel77 (800) - oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 19, 2014
Botella de 33 cl de 2d2 dspuma tomada en abril de 2013. Bastante buena en general, y de las mas interesantes dentro de la serie. Sabores ligeramente oleosos y afrutados y ligeramente amargos muy interesantes. Para repetir en cuanto se pueda sin duda.

Thanks to Reimer96 for this. Pours cloudy copper orange with a big off white frothy head. Aroma is orange and pine hops and sweet caramel malts. Taste is nice woody, caramel malt balancing orange and pine hop bitterness.

simonblaine (273) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 2, 2014
Pours copper orangey with a decent head. Aroma if malt, berries, citrus, wheat. Taste is like a mix of every beer you can imagine in small quantities. A little wheat, a little malt, a little sweet, a lot delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
